“Crazy Girls has had nearly 17,000 shows, and I’m proud to say all of them have been here at the Riviera,” says Andy Choy, president and CEO of Riviera Casino & Hotel. “The controversy that surrounded the show when it opened in 1987 boosted its popularity to unbelievable heights, making Crazy Girls the must-see show on the Las Vegas Strip. That sentiment holds true today as we begin the show’s next 25-year run at Riviera.”

To commemorate the historic anniversary, Crazy Girls created Las Vegas’ Longest Butt Lineup, a reenactment of the iconic “No Ifs, Ands or…” pose that is forever immortalized in bronze at the front of the Riviera.

Blue Man Group, the international entertainment phenomenon, partnered with Red Bull to mark the launch of its latest awe-inspiring show at its new home Monte Carlo Resort and Casino , Wednesday morning, October 10.

“Creating thrilling, exploratory and thought-provoking moments that make an impact on people is what Blue Man Group strives for every day,” said Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group Founder. “We are excited to share our first new show in 20 years with Las Vegas.

Onlookers from The Strip witnessed the spectacular sight and upon landing, Blue Man Group was greeted by Founders Chris Wink and Phil Stanton, Monte Carlo General Manager Patrick Miller, and Las Vegas icon and Chair of the LVCVA’s Host Committee Oscar Goodman. Following the dramatic stunt, Blue Man Group headed inside to Blue Man Theater to celebrate the move to its new home on the Las Vegas Strip. Blue Man Group performed with their signature paint drums and flipped a switch, illuminating the theater entrance symbolizing the new beginning.

Guests will enjoy the dramatic changes to Blue Man Group’s first new show in 20 years. Each day, 45 minutes prior to the first show, the energy kicks off with a dazzling procession of musical joy and luminescence, which can best be described as an energetic percussive parade designed by a mad scientist. The surging, intoxicating beat fills the casino as Blue Man Group launches a Percussipede, a musical centipede of percussion instruments, musicians, robots and puppets co-created with world-renowned 3-D designer Michael Curry.

The audience will also experience the joy of a set of giant Smoke Drums that emit mystical, ethereal smoke rings out into the world and a Neuronulum, a newly crafted pipe-instrument worn by the Blue Men which provides musical and visual pulses of energy across a theater-wide neural landscape.

Chris Wink, Blue Man Group Founder, said, “Our creative team has been working for two years to propel Blue Man Group’s indescribable celebration of art, technology and music to a whole new level for the Monte Carlo production. Audience members will be enveloped in a one-of-a-kind, colorful and interactive experience that only Blue Man Group can provide.”
